I also would suggest thinking of it as less guild and more a trading company or ships crew. I would def be down for some nautical action ( Already has a character pictured, named and story developing , in his head).

A forum is being created, so that's a huge step indeed! :D

I want to meet up ICly with anyone interested over the weekend and also send me a OOC pm so I can get a head count. We can carry on this discussion on the boards. So as I've seen a couple of players are thinking of remorts and Chasman is dreaming one up. So a bit more discussion is needed but looks like some really positive interest.

Arrr!

It sounds like a lot of fun!

Isn't putting together a guild application putting the cart before the horse? Does it meet guild requirements? Board interest isn't the same as actual IG interaction and work/play. See how it pans out in practice before getting too hung up on theory. You're writing out a SWAGS app as if this is how you all have already played.

Midnight mercenary co. met up often, yet never went for guild status. FEAT went for guild status, yet went through hoops to get it. I think Chasman is on the right track. See how the idea sticks, and go from there. Make guild sponsorship secondary!

There is no guild status, there are no perks and there is no sponsorship.

There is only a board where creative ideas can be discussed amongst those who are interested and a platform to build on. Then if structure is sound and fits with Avlis and everything you just said... Then a full application can be submitted.

I've have some experience here on Avlis...

I will even add that there will be NO IC posting of any sort. It will be purely OOC discussions. IC discussion IG of course can take place and most of it should be done there. But the flavor, structure, lore and material having a board will be helpful.

This might not get anywhere and fall to the way side. Great thing here it's a positive creative movement in bringing more RP and lore development to Avlis.

So we shall see... I'm willing to invest my time as I think it could be alot of fun.

Ill do it through the General Discussions board and create a new think tank thread.

Thank you!

... I have not forgotten about this. I will create a OOC thread for development soon.

I've already started to spread the word IG.

The ACE quayside and Ship are both now live. Fun starts on Thursday, although we will probably take a look Wednesday as well, before the Performance Evening :wink:
